Daniela Pfuetzenreiter has joined SCCAOR as our new Membership Coordinator. She will work alongside our Membership Team to help new members join SCCAOR and assist current members with any questions or issues about their Association membership.

“One of the most exciting things about working with REALTORS® is giving them the tools needed to help people find their homes,” said Pfuetzenreiter. “And in some way, I think I am doing a part in helping them find their homes as well.”

Daniela is no stranger to the real estate industry. She worked for the San Benito Association of REALTORS® for three years as an Executive Assistant, where she handled communications, social media, tour meetings, and other membership related activities.

“We are so happy to have Daniela on the team,” said Tracey Lee, Membership Services Manager. “Her past Association experience and positive attitude make her a great addition to SCCAOR and we look forward to having her work at our new Gilroy office when it opens.”

Born and raised in Brazil, Daniela studied Journalism and Communications in college. She then lived in London, England for a year where she worked for WA International. In 2005 she moved to the United States and has lived in California ever since. In her free time, she enjoys photography, going to the beach, boating, riding her bicycle, and looking after her dogs and cats.

The Santa Clara County Association of REALTORS® would like to congratulate our incoming 2020 Leadership Team.
